Elsa Barreto is a women’s fashion Portuguese brand, born in 1992.
With a very well established and unique identity since the beginning, the brand has been producing collections instantly recognised for their prominent personality, where feminine lines and the conceptual design stands up.
Elsa Barreto is also a usual presence in the press, dressing celebrities at social and cultural spotlighted events and occasions, which, inevitably, led Elsa Barreto to be recognised as a reference fashion brand in Portugal. Today, offering the Portuguese manufacturing high quality, the brand is focused on reaching the international markets, with a concept conveying a lifestyle that goes through elegance, sophistication, and comfort but also contemporary fashion and tendencies.

The fashion designer Elsa Barreto was born in 1966 in Braga, Portugal.

Her interest in fashion started at an early age, creating clothes for her own dolls, and later for herself and her friends.

She grew up revealing an unconventional fashion vision.

Wearing bold and unequal garments, she expressed herself through her creations and style.

In 1987, Elsa graduated from Porto Fashion Academy winning the the national New Talent contest in her final year.

Right after, she started working in the field, being responsible for the woman’s creation department of a big Portuguese textile. Four years later, driven by the desire of sharing her own fashion vision to the public, she decided to launch her own label.
